Washington Arbitration Week

  • Monday, November 27, 2023 9:00 AM - Friday, December 1, 2023 5:45 PM

Please join Covington at Washington Arbitration Week. The event will be both in-person and virtual. We are proud sponsors of WAW, and look forward to participating in these three events, two of which will be hosted in-person at our Washington office on November 28th.

WAW’s panels will follow a dynamic format and foster an open discussion about the future of international arbitration. They will shed light on new arbitration techniques, focus on developments and evolving interpretations and views, and discuss the best practices for international arbitration in the new virtual reality.
